2011 NHL Draft prospect Zack Phillips of the QMJHL's Saint Johns Sea Dogs.

He's known for his smart two way game and playmaking. He is a natural center although he's been playing on fellow top prospect, Jonathan Huberdeau's wing for most of the 2010-11 season. However, he does take the brunt of the face off work. He's thrived in the the role, accumulating 92 points in 64 games, ranking him 7th overall in the league.

38 of those points have been goals, so its safe to say he's not one dimensional. He's a good shooter who can finish plays and pick his spots in open space. Still, his best attribute is his ability to distribute the puck. This strength doesn't arise from flashy plays or over handling of the puck but smart positioning and good decision making.

His skating may not be a weakness but its likely holding him back from being considered a surefire 1st rounder at this point. If he does continue to develop and improve his straight line speed and acceleration he could very well become a versatile top 6 forward in the NHL one day.
